Seeing as to how it is the end of the school year and many of you may be graduating from high school and moving on to college, I saw it fit to embrace my inner foodie, and write a blog about some foods that can help you avoid the dreaded “Freshman 15” and promote brain health as well as foods that may have an adverse effect. The first article I found was from the website DrAxe.com. The article describes 15 foods that will keep your brain sharp. Each food item on the list comes with a short description of how it is beneficial to your health and the vitamins and minerals contained. Ranging from blueberries to bone broth, there will be at least one item in this list that you will like. This article also briefly goes into detail about stress and its effects on the body.

The next article I found is one that from sleep.org, a website powered by the National Sleep Foundation. This article contains a list of five foods that will make you tired or lethargic. Like our last article, this one provides the foods with a short description of why they may make you tired. I found it surprising that some of the foods like cherries and bananas can make us feel tired. I would have never guessed.

Another article that I found was from Men’s Fitness, and it was about ten foods that fight fatigue. This article contains a list of foods, like chia seeds, watermelon, and beans, that help energize you without using crazy chemicals like some of the energy drinks out there. The list includes short descriptions of the foods along with what they contain and how that benefits you.
Lastly, seeing as to how some of you all are going to be leaving to college, I decided to find an article about affordable superfoods. This article is from Reader’s Digest: Best Health. This is another list of foods ranging from yogurt to flax seeds that can have a beneficial effect on your health and you will find affordable.
